Bayern Munich Academy coach extols Awka stadium pitch

The football pitch at Awka Township Stadium in Anambra has been hailed as ideal for the game by Christopher Loch, coach of Bayern Munich FC Academy.

Loch, who was in Awka for the Bayern National Youth Cup, told newsmen that the surface was well-constructed and should be maintained on a regular basis.

It was wonderful for football movement and control, he remarked.

In his words, “I was not expecting to see this, it is an amazing perfect pitch; good for football, we had this event in Abuja, the pitch was natural grass but not as perfect as this.

“Pitches like this enhance the beauty of football; that is why coaches and players look for good pitches.

“It is good for ball movement and ball control and off the ball. We had this event in Abuja; the pitch was natural grass but not perfect.”

The German said all that was needed was good maintenance and regular use.

“For a football game, I don’t think any is missing here, the only thing missing here are the players, let there be more games here,” he added.

John Chidozie, a football fan, praised the Anambra government for hiring Monimichelle Construction Company to build the hybrid synthetic surface.

Governor Chukwuma Soludo was urged by Chidozie to enable the contractor to maintain the pitch for a while before handing it back to the government.

He stated that his appeal was motivated by the significant amount of money spent on the stadium’s reconstruction.
